Smeg - yes, it is the CGD one. I think the only option in this scale. I ordered direct from his website. I’m going to have to make a new canopy as the transparent resin one doesn’t cut it for me (I will after all only ever build one horsa in my life).
Dave - yes, good thinking on the design. I hadn’t thought of that. It was also the lower drag (no wingtip vortices) so it could be a worthwhile flying droptank for the B-29 and presumably have a better glide ratio. But the spar must have featured in the decision. Interesting!
Fritz - thank you, the vehicles are all shapeways. The CCKW tanker is not yet finished but I used it anyway. I can dig out the links for them if you like? The tanker is particularly well done, with a removable cab and a driver.

And Fritz, I've got the JACH DFS230 pair, too. My kit was missing the canopies, but Jarda (the man behind JACH) kindly sent me replacements. Definitely on my radar ...

The Hotspur is also a nice little glider and you can even get a Twin Hotspur with the Anigrand Shetland.
GRA Models do a 1/148-1/150 Horsa, Hamilcar and a WACO (though Miniwing did the WACO and YAK-14) - though they are aimed more at wargaming and need a fair but of work to bring up to scratch.
600 Waco £13.95
601 Horsa £14.95
602 Hamilcar £15.95
606 C47 £17.95

608 Gotha £
609 Short Sky Van
610 Britten Norman Islander £ 22.50

Rijk's is the better option I think.
